SteadyMove pro is a plug in for after effects and premiere... But After Effects can do it, just requires a few extra steps... But honestly, all methods can't be used in every shaking footage case. A lot of times if there is too much shake, and because of the shake the objects in the shot will blur because of the shake... And because it's there, yes, the shot can be stabilized, but you will get these crazy blur moments on the objects, because the blur was never eliminated. Just the shake. If that makes sense.

But of course, if you have case where it is a minimal shake that doesn't distort objects in the shot, then it can work very well.

i used the motion tracking stabilising function that's standard in After effects, but since CS4 After effects comes with an amazing program called Mocha that is a much better motion tracking software than its built in one.

I did not know that... I'll have to look into that.

I noticed something when I watched ESB the other day. I don't know if this has been mentioned before.

In the scene when Zev Senesca is flying his snowspeeder looking for Luke and Han we see out from the front window him going towards a large black rock. Later, when he is saying his last line in this shot, we see that black rock -- from the same angle, but through the back window. It is obviously the same shot, but played backwards.

Never noticed... Not sure it bothers me either. But perhaps I need to see it. Anybody have any stills?

I've always though that the Falcon's flight trajectory was preset. After all, the technicians messed up its hyper-drive, maybe it was programmed to fly towards the Executor? Yes, it does have the plot-hole that they went to get Luke first, but still..

Also, I'm not sure how it is explained in the EU, but can a ship's tractor beam hold on to another ship, if the latter engages its hyper-drive engine? Maybe Lando and Chewie didn't care about the tractor beams (and thus flying towards the Executor), as long as they got the hyper-drive working.

 

Star Wars space physics is a strange thing, and a Star Destroyer is apparantly a very fast thing, able to keep up with the Falcon during the chase through open space. I figure they spotted the SSD, tried to fly away, but due to this unseen speed that is made to seem slow because of how massive the ships are, the Executor can still intercept the Falcon without it's modified hyperdrive. In ANH Han also boasts that he can outrun the "big corellian ships", which is apparantly a speed benchmark. Would make sense again that he empire posesses the best equipment.

And also in ANH the incoming star destroyer quickly catches up with the falcon, revelaing that the only arena in which the falcon can actually outrun them is hyperspace. "I thought you said his thing was fast?!"

Ah ! I can see we have the same release date for our edits Adywan ! That's great. That's gonna be a wonderful 40th ESB anniversary !!! :)

a friend of mine does have software that can stablize footage.

There's the Deshaker filter (free) for VirtualDub (also free) that can do this.

The shake in ANH (I assume we're talking about the shots of Han and Luke when the TIEs buzz the Falcon) was artifical, and is just a horizontal displacement of the image, so doesn't require anything that complex to remove it. I went the opposite way to Ady and added some rotation and blur to make the shake look more realistic.

Back on topic...

Hey Ady,

Just checking in with you now that my password woes on the forum are finally sorted out.

See the edit progresses well. 2020 huh? ;) Well, I'm a patient person.

I think one common misconception with the ships in Star Wars is that people think bigger = slower. Certainly if you compare a jet fighter to a cargo plane in our universe, the jet fighter will always be faster. However, if you compare a small freighter on Earth with say, a destroyer, the destroyer is usually quicker as it is engineered that way.  Even with all of Han's special modifications to the Falcon, it was still conceived as a freighter and as such the precision engineered Imperial warships are able to keep up most of the time. That's what I always thought, anyway.

Well, there's no friction in space, and physics are not my strongest point, but doesn't an object in space accelerate continuously and the only limitation is essentially its driving mechanism? No gravity affecting the mass of the object? So, a Star Destroyer, with its huge engines and immensely powerful reactor should be a pretty fast vessel, when outside of combat, at least.

 

EDIT: If there is something that bothers me about the fact that Ady and ABC's excellent TESB projects both arrive for the 40th anniversary, it's that the rest of the movies will pale even more in comparison... ah! :)

To clarify. The ESBR teaser visual comparisons I do by hand. Ady did the ANHR one, and hopefully will do the ESBR one. I just host them.

 sounds like a full time job

Maybe you wait somebit. Regarding to a german news-site the Video-Editing Software "Lightworks" could be Open Source someday, so it could be somebit cheaper :) to get some editing software with enough functions.

Here is the german news from April 15th. (Its in german... but maybe google helps a bit to understand)

 

Or maybe you try Cinelerra for Linux.

 

Or maybe OpenShot Video Editor

..again for Linux.

You are forgetting about mass! Newton's second law: F= m*a => a=F/m. This means the bigger mass of the object, the lower the acceleration with the same force applied. Mass inertia is applicable in space too ;)

Btw, I am so excited for the anniversary ESB:R clip.

I can listen sounds on space! I want a law for that too

Don't worry, sooner or later a parliament somewhere will regulate the noise levels in space and you'll have your wish... :p

Don't try to quantify The Force.  That is the same mistake the PT made.
